Interactive Stories- Hub

Chapter 1

So, basically...

by: _Ripple_
Time to get hyped, guys.




So, I'm starting something new soon. Essentially, it's going to be an Interactive Story- just like those Choose-Your-Own-Adventure novels you read as a kid. I'll give you a scenario, and you'll choose your reaction to the scenario- eventually, your choices will all add up, and determine what your ending will be, which will be detailed in the 'Results' section of the quiz. We've all taken these quizzes before, right? There's a million of them on Quibblo. Some of them are better than others, sure, but what really sets mine apart?

Let me tell you, my friend. This isn't just going to be any ordinary Interactive-Short-Story, this is going to be a damned adventure. See, your story's not going to be over after the first quiz- oh no. The results of your first quiz aren't going to be your ending- they're going to be your link to a second, private quiz- which will, in turn, link you to a third, and a fourth, based on your choices and personality. There's nothing short-story about this. This is an adventure, and you will be in awe of it, or invoke my wrath,

I mean- uh-

Coughs.
So, to give you an idea of what I'l be doing.

Say there first quiz splits into five separate quizzes. That's okay, right? That's 5 separate story-lines for me to keep track of. Nothing too drastic. It's manageable- but then, those quizzes split into another 5 each, and suddenly I have 25 quizzes to make and keep track of, and if they split into five each, then I have 125 stories to write.

Well, this isn't exactly what's going to happen. The first quiz will probably split into quite a few other quizzes, but after that, they might only split into two or three, depending on how the story goes. I'm hoping this will span over at least four quizzes, though, so that's still a lot of possibilities, a lot of stories to handle, a lot of fates in my hands for me to take care of- or demolish.

I want you to all have some form of input on how the stories will end, outside of the actual quizzes. I'd like for the comments here to be a a place where you can throw around ideas, talk about your expectations, and your feelings towards previous chapters. Ultimately, I'll be in control. I won't respond to demands or requests, but I'll be listening to your ideas, and either using them, or using them to take you by surprise with epic plot-twists.

I have some general ideas for what I could write about, but I need your input. These quizzes are all about you, after all. So, here are some questions which I'd love for you to answer in the comments, just to get us started.

1. Which genre would you prefer?
a.)Fantasy
b.)Horror
c.)Sci-fi
d.)Other- and for the love of god, if you choose this, then please, specify.

2. Should the story be set in:
a.)A modern setting?
b.)An olden-day setting?
c.)A steampunk (or similar) universe?
d.)The future?

That's all I'd like to know for now. Please, be patient, guys, and please do comment. Believe me- I'm far more likely to hunt you down and murder you while you sleep if I see that you've read this and not helped me out by commenting, that if you post a dumb comment. Anyway, as my oh-so-optimistic school-teachers would say, there's no such thing as a stupid question. Feel free to say whatever you like, just as long as you don't decide you'll 'leave it to someone else', and not say anything. Your opinion matters to me. Opinions are my bread and butter, I swear.


I'm almost, almost considering making this my NaNoWriMo for the year.
(For those of you who don't know what NaNoWriMo is, I'll let Urban Dictionary help me out:


National Novel Writing Month: A contest in which contestants try to write a novel of at least 50,000 words in the month of Novermber.

-It's not really a contest. It's a lot of fun, and the reward is a nifty little winner picture and the satisfaction of knowing you've created, at least some, Good Art.

-As many people who can win are official winners. Wordcounts are validated by the Nanowrimo website.

-It's only called National because that sounds spiffy. People from all around the world participate every year.

-Nanowrimo creates a deadline and in this way forces people to write books that they never would have had the initiative to write themselves.)


If I don't decide to use this as my NaNoNovel, it'll probably go a lot more slowly- as I more-or-less put everything on hold throughout NaNoWriMo. We'll just have to see what happens.

I'll stop here, before I start rambling.

Guys, please, comment, and SHARE this! I haven't asked anyone to share my work in years, so you can see how much of a big deal this is to me.

Thanks for reading,
I hope you'll participate. :)

Love,

~Ripple

Gah, although, of course, I won't go ahead with this if this doesn't get enough interest. Four reads and one comment at this point. u_u
